Over two weeks, we sampled four of the top hotels in Guadeloupe, and this tops them all. Malanga is set on a lush rain forest hillside on Basse Terre, on a 12 hectare property that is wonderfully managed and maintained. We were lodged in a colonial house built ca. 1920, beautifully restored with shiny wooden floors. The food is great, the service personal and unequaled, and the atmosphere is relaxing. One can take this as a starting point to discover the La Soufriere vulcano, just a few kilometers away, or just waste the day away at the perfect infinity pool, from which one can admire several islands in the distance while sipping a ti-punch.
We slept well in modern beds, and for the techies, the internet connection is quite good and hassle-free.
It is not cheap, but a paradise like this should not be.
